Reimagined to be our thinnest and lightest Kindle ever

Designed to feel as light as paper, Kindle Oasis is over 20% lighter and 30% thinner on average than any other Kindle. The handgrip tapers to an ultra-thin 3.4 mm display so you can read comfortably for hours.

Kindle Oasis combines our strongest cover glass and a featherweight frame infused with metal using structural electroplating, ensuring it is lightweight while also resilient enough to take it with you everywhere you go.

Perfectly balanced ergonomic design

A tapered ergonomic handgrip shifts the centre of gravity to your palm, to rest in your hand like the spine of a book. Perfectly balanced for one-handed reading, Kindle Oasis lets you lose yourself in your story.

Comfortably turn the page with either the touch display or dedicated page turn buttons located on the front of the handgrip. Whether you choose to read with your left or right hand, Kindle Oasis automatically rotates the page orientation to match.

Highest-resolution Kindle with enhanced lighting

Kindle Oasis features a high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp text, which reads like the printed page, on the same 6” display size as Kindle Voyage. A redesigned built-in light features 60% more LEDs than any other Kindle, increasing the consistency and range of screen brightness for improved reading in all types of lighting. Kindle Oasis guides light towards the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eye strain.

Dual-battery charging system provides the longest battery life of any Kindle

Charge the device and cover simultaneously while joined together and plugged in. When on the go, the cover will recharge the device automatically, giving you months of combined battery life. Plus, a new hibernation mode minimises power consumption when your Kindle is inactive, extending battery life to its fullest capacity.

Premium leather cover

The removable charging cover is made of high-quality leather and comes in your choice of black, merlot or walnut. The cover opens like a book and fits closely around the bezel, waking Kindle Oasis when opened and putting it to sleep when closed. Twelve magnets form a secure and solid attachment between device and cover, while still easy to detach when the lightest possible weight is desired.
